I think for the most part, you could shuffle the league's top 15 goaltenders, put them all on different teams, and the result would be +/- .25sv% and no significant change to the respective teams. I think the Gm's know this, which is why the market for goaltenders is soft right now.
you do realize that no goalie has been close to lundqvist when you take the past 5 seasons as a whole right? each year one goalie gets hot and wins a vezina. hank has been hot for 8 consecutive seasons under 2 different coaches. you really think a coaching change will knock him out of the top 5 for the first time in his career?
